Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera revealed in Geneva | Rpmgo.com



Many reputed sportscar manufacturers are presenting at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show things like hybrids or new concepts which will pave the way for such a technology. Lotus and Ferrari have both done it, but it seems there’s at least one wild child at the Swiss convention: Lamborghini.

While people are thinking about “green” living and lowered CO2 emissions, what did that Italian supercar manufacturer do? Present a lighter, even more powerful version of its Gallardo entry-level model. Besides that, it painted it bright green, just for the kicks.

The new *breathe in* Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera *exhale*, follows the already known direction of augmenting the power of the 5.2-liter V10, this time up to 570 HP, and reducing the weight of the car, this time by 70 kg (154 lbs), through the use of carbon fiber and other such materials.

Other notable features include the 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, wrapped in high performance Pirelli tires and hiding carbon ceramic brakes, all-wheel drive and a six-speed e-gear transmission. The result of these enhancements? 0 to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and 202 mph.

If you can’t enjoy seeing the real thing in Geneva, you can take a look in the photo gallery below.
